Oct 19 2011 | Supreme Court has heavily criticised the Haj policy of Central government specifically the practice of sending VIPs on Haj from public money, calling it ‘bad religious practice’.
The bench of Justice Aftab Alam and Justice Ranjana Prakash made this remark in relation with the discretionary quota of Government that allows them to nominate 11000 pilgrims, which are distributed across politically sensitive states. The court minced no words in saying that it might have political use but it’s not Haj.
It however, continued the stay on the Bombay High Court order which instructed the government to allot 800 seats out of its 11000 quota, to private operators
